Betting Tip: Distant Past @ 7/1 with bet365

There’s a good turnout of 16 for the 5f handicap and with bookies going 6/1 the field there is a strong incentive to have a stab at finding the winner. Majestic Hero looks one of the more likely candidates as he’s been running consistently well of late and only narrowly failed at Ascot last time. However, he invariably gets nailed by one or two late on and could be vulnerable to a better handicapped rival.

Kevin Ryan’s DISTANT PAST certainly falls into that category as he’s back on a mark 2lb lower than his last winning one and 11lb below his peak. He’s been absent since running a fine third in a Premier Handicap at the Curragh in July, when seeing too much daylight from a poor draw, but a quick market check suggests he’s ready to go and his in-form stable is fresh from landing Saturday’s Ayr Gold Cup with Brando. The forecast fast ground is fine for him.
